11:14 am
>> right now, secretary of state john kerry briefing senators on the negotiations with iran. he had repeatedly asked for more time and may not get it. in just the last hour the senate foreign relations committee chairman announced a deal is given to give congress more say. the bill requires approval for a deal before u.s. sanctions are dropped. the committee will vote this afternoon on that bill. sanctions are critical to agreement with iran. the foreign minister just this morning slammed them saying no good deal can come with a threat of sanctions looming. later this year you get a chance to look inside this. one of the oldest buildings on national mall. the 134-year-old arts and industries building is next to the smithsonian castle. it's closed since 2005 for a major renovation. well officials hope to turn it into an innovation center but scrapped the plans because of financial pressure. the acting secretary of the smithsonian now says it will

welcome back. virginia was a subject of a poll saying a lot of you support legalizing marijuana in some form. taking a look at the map, we
11:18 am
want a closer look at the numbers in virginia. double clicking that real quick. it looks like the poll asked about both medical and personal pot use and a majority approved of both. now of the 950-plus voters asked about this 86% said that they supported legalizing pot use for medical use preskribled by the doctor. 86%. there you go. just 11% were actually against it. now we want to look at some other numbers. 54% of voters told quinnipiac university researchers they supported legalizing the drug for personal use, too. 41% opposed it including a majority of republican voters and those older than age of 55. get this barbara. when asked if they would use pot if it were legal, 69%, nearly 70% said definitely not. >> thank you. we have new video just in to the newsroom of a plane that skidded off the runway in japan

11:21 am
struggled at president is not because he served two and a half years in the senate before running. i don't care if it's 20 years. his ideas haven't worked. >> little later in the hour whether hillary clinton's road trip to iowa is helping her make inroads. chuck? thank you. your weather headlines for a rather soggy tuesday, the rain is going to continue for the remainder of the daylight hours for sure. sunshine will be making a bit of a comeback before tomorrow and more chances for rain in time for the weekend. today's a lost cause to the raindrops. tomorrow plenty of clouds first thing in the morning and clearing out and we should be back to fair amounts of sunshine tomorrow afternoon with temperatures in the mid and upper 60s. here's the way the next four days look. showers and falling temperatures today. sunshine back tomorrow. a little chance for rain late in the day on thursday. better chance on friday. we'll talk more and more about that weekend. a new report says spending
